HobbyKing™ is excited to be carrying the full range of the ESUN brand of 3D printing filament. ESUN is recognised as one of the world's leading and most innovative manufacturers for 3D additive printing.
The PLA, ABS, Flexible, Luminous and many other types of materials are perfect for whatever application you have in mind. ESUN has established their brand recognition through their quality products and consistency, the filaments have a stable melting point, good round shape and most importantly a 0.05mm uniform diameter tolerance for a consistent flow rate.
PLA has a lower melting point and prints easier than other materials. One of the most important features is that PLA is non-toxic, and even has a sweet smell when printing. PLA has a low shrinkage rate and it is very rigid with minimal flex. This material can print extremely high resolution models and is perfect for a wide range of uses. PLA is considered stronger than ABS but is more susceptible to cracking when flexing, impact or torsional loads so the mechanical needs of the print project has to be evaluated.
PLA has a huge range of vibrant colors and opacity for that perfect look whether it is artistic or utilitarian, in short a great material for 3D printing. PLA can be printed without the use of a heat bead, and can stick to glass or a PCB plate with a binder such as hairspray or white glue for a curl free print.
3D printing is a fun and exciting hobby with a wide range of uses from prototyping parts to making toys for the kids. Picking the right filament for your application is very important. Please visit the ESUN web site for more information as well as the recommended settings for your printer.

Plastic is grey and lights up blue :-)I just started using this and the color is not blue. It's more like the gray you see in the picture, so I'll call it gray. It's also supposed to be glow in the dark, but it hardly does. I have the glow in the dark inland and it's night and day or none with this one. If I leave the light on it very long, than you can see it glow a little bit and a bit blue too, but I have to pout it next to my lamp and for a while. The inland piece I have just sits there and I can turn the light on and off right away and it glows nicely. So if you're looking for a nice glow in the dark, this one is not it. However it does print well so I can still use it for test parts I make. So it's not a total loss, but it's definitely not what I was hoping for.
